The members of College of Wooster’s Latin@ Student Association desire to bring cultural, social and educational awareness to our fellow students about the Latin@ heritage and traditions.  This also insures that as Latinos, we grow and move forward in our adult lives remembering the significance of our roots; for non-Latin@s, it exposes them to a growing culture in the United States, which will help them in understanding the Latin@ community. 

Wooster’s Latin@ Student Association therefore will adhere to four main objectives:

  1. Culture:  To promote our culture by organizing, participating, and sponsoring events/activities that celebrate la cultura Latina.
  2. Social:  To promote a Latin@ atmosphere through organizing and/or sponsoring social events in or outside of the campus community.
  3. Community:  To serve our own communities through social/community service.
  4. Familia:  To create a community of friendship, respect, peer support, trust and understanding between all our members.
